news. that is that religions grow out of this awkward phase. again look at christianity. we've aged into young adulthood. now we can all laugh about the time we used to burn young girls at the stake for being left-handed. or as we called it back then, witch craft. >> jon: yeah, i don't think that's so funny. >> jon, that's because your religion is... in fact, how old are you? >> jon: we're 5773 today. obviously you don't look a day over 5729. that's a fact. >> jon: we've been jogging. you're glowing. it's working. the point, jon, is that we need to be patient with islam. they do not have it easy. remember, most teenagers have some means of escape from their insecurity. they smoke pot. they experiment with sex. all night bacon parties. reformation. muslims can't do any of that stuff right now. >> jon: you're saying if we just wait 300 to 400 years >> half a millennium at most. jon: then there will be peace peace? what? [bleep] no, jon. but if we're lucky, we will finally stop fighting over real or imagined insults to our religions and go back to fighting over what really matters: nat
or hetero jenne 80, how many languages are spoken, how many religions and the extent of the space and facilities among the religions, how are natural resources distributed, generally not a good idea for all the resources to be found only in one part of a large country and things like that. i don't want to overestimate the importance of constitutions or to say here is our constitution that has really worked because no doubt there would be examples when it didn't. let me be truly heretical and say that one of the things i like about many state constitutions and you find these especially as we move west but not only in the west, is the degree to which they allow an element of direct democracy. the united states constitution was written by people who not to put too fine a point on it were fundamentally mistrustful to their core of democracy. james madison rights very proudly in the third federalist that although the constitution is ordained we the people, that will be the last time the people speak more or less directly. otherwise they will speak exclusively through elected representa
the turmoil in the middle east, without having it then. the talk of freedom of speech, freedom of religion -- it was a speech about peace and getting together and how to communicate with others, so that was a little bit of a surprise because many people expected a tough- talking obama who would pump up the pressure on syria and on iran, but this was more like a classic un speech. >> there is still a lot of rhetoric on syria, but can we expect any u.n. action there? >> what we see so far -- well, we actually did not see it, but there was a close security council meeting on monday, and we heard u.s. -- un special envoy brahimi announce he was working on a security plan, but he kept his cards pretty close to the vest. he did not give away what this peace plan would look like. when we talked to the german foreign minister on tuesday, he said we should not get our hopes up too high, that he did not expect any ground-breaking there, that there was still this stalemate between russia and china on the one side of the security council and basically the western world on the other side. he voiced his
's to practice their religion. that's all the president was saying. i thought he might be nice value, but was not apologizing for what he did. i would say this, i think it is very important that the united states of israel, this gets the first part of your comic come to be together here publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. as in every family, you wonder how the united front is okay to argue and disagree behind the scenes, but she don't want to disagree in front of our adversaries. so i do think it's incumbent upon both the israelis as well as the american to show some friendship publicly. we're going to have an honest disagreement with the israeli government and frankly i say to president obama on this one. prime minister netanyahu is effectively intervened at our political campaign by suggesting the united states should draw red lines that we would use military force if iran does x, y or z. that to me doesn't make a lot of sense. we don't want to have to send american military into battle just because it reaches a level of en
and their religion. he has quite a different religion and the rest of the world is divided up amongst many other religions. i think probably the thing that bothers me most about ahmadinejad he continues to call for the obliteration of the state of israel. that i find offensive. the days on which he chooses to do so, he is no more or less vile and condemnable making such utterances. frankly i'm embarrassed this administration sat in their seats as a delegation of the united states of america and listened to such viciousness, such madness from this pathetic leader of what was once a great nation. melissa: yeah, there are some things going on with the u.n. this week that are so frustrating. you have the president yesterday once again talking about this movie -- >> this is reached a level of, that demands great explanation by this administration as to how this president could spend almost, well, two weeks to the day, talking about a movie as the insipient root of the terrorist attack against our consulate and the murder of our ambassador and the president before the general assembly calls the death
notice and would endanger their reporters. in france, they said, we respect the muslim religion for them, but it is not for us. and they expect us to end our first amendment -- >> we, americans, can not accept that they have their culture and we have ours. we stand for freedom, rights, i don't think that you should back off of those for one moment. we support israel that has their values as well as ours. there is a very different set of police. it is just imposed upon them by political and religious leadership. >> iran. before we get to that, i want to talk about the 1980 presidential election because you were involved with that one as well. and there might be a parallel here that we can discuss. historically, an american presidential elections, 50% of jews to vote for the democratic party. and president carter, the each got 40%. congressman anderson got 20%. those numbers were just historic. it may or may not have influenced the race, but it had a post camp david ethos. yet another un resolution where they passed a resolution saying that jerusalem was occupied. and the occupation of jer
ought to be free, just as jews and christians and hindus ought to be free to practice religion. he was representing american values but i don't think he was apologizing. it is very important that the united states and israel -- this to the first part of your comment -- be together publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. as in every family, you want to have a united front publicly. it is ok to disagree behind the scenes, but you do not want to disagree in front of adversaries. it is incumbent upon the israelis and americans to show french a publicly. -- show friendship publicly. i side with president obama on this one. prime minister netanyahu of israel has effectively intervene in our campaign here by suggesting that the united states should drop redlines and that we will use military force if iran does x or z. that does not make sense. we do not want to send the military into battle just because iran reaches a certain level of enrichment of uranium. we ought to want our president, whether it is president obama or president rom
to build the alternative solution and it's not easy because you have different religions, different histories, you have the people who were outside -- >> what if there's atalemate and the killing continues and continues and continues. >> first it means that the rules of the security council-- when you have two countries, great yis, russia and china-- saying no, and the fact that there is a continuous killing the public tensions, you, everybody says no, it doesn't make sense. i was saying this afternoon to the security council. we are the security council of the united nations. we are not the wall counsel of not united nations. we have to fulfill our roam to implement a role but today we do not. but if this massacre continues, i think, first, it will have terrible effects on the region, and maybe-- well, our principle, as i was saying, is to comply with the international legal rules. the time comes where the human pressure is too strong, and maybe the time is coming. >> rose: in other words, there may be a time you have to act even though you cannot get security council approval. >>
. there was no islam is a great religion, none of that today. there was just a statement about how important it is for these new countries feeling their way, led by new men, to get a handle on the violence that threatens the presence of americans in their country. one thing you said that intrigued me, he said we want to stay, we want to help you, we don't want to dictate, we want did work with you, but if you can't protect us we will not be there. the subtle message was, if you want our help, you have to do your part to make sure it is safe if americans to operate. >>shepard: the fact of the matter is, they want our help and our money. this is really not much question about that part of it. they don't want to say that at home. >>guest: that is another thing the president mentioned in the speech, the kind of, on one hand, being very offended by things that are appearing in the press and on television. on the other hand, not doing anything or saying anything about the desecration and destruction of churches in their own countries, about the persecution of christians and other minorities. it wa
'm quoting to all prophet examines all religions and all faiths, homosexuality is strictly forbidden. it is a very ugly behavior. >> bill: well, in iran if you're gay, you can be flogged or even executed. check three, the democratic congressional committee is holding a contest to decide who is the worst republican politician in the country. very classy. nominees are allen west, michelle bachman and paul ryan. all of them should be very proud that they have annoyed their opponents so much. check 4, speaking today at the clinton global initiative, mitt romney said this. >> if there is one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. all i got to do now is wait a couple of days for that bounce to happen. >> bill: president clinton actually praised the governor in the introduction. that's what we like to see, a little detante now and then. finally, check five, there is chaos in the national football league because the referees are being locked out by the league in a wage dispute. and the substitute refs are

"uses addressed to regain the initiative on foreign policy." if you look at the front page of "the washington times" this , the right "the expected campaign advantage on foreign policy suddenly in doubt, the president portrayed the deaths of the americans in libya has inflamed tensions over an anti- islamic movie rather than tensions based on american policy in the middle east." from "the washington times," the headline says "romney, exchange for reform."

not a freedom of expression that targets of a specific religion or a specific coulter -- culture. a freedom of expression that tackles extremism and violence, not the freedom of expression that deepens ignorance and as regards others. -- disregards others. we also as we have said before, and we also stand formally -- firmly against the use of violence in objection to these sentiments. mr. president, before i conclude, i must say that if -- that the severity of the financial and economic crises must lead us to review the economic decision making process on behalf of people that do not participate in their preparation. they are the first to bear the negative consequences in growth and trade and environment, as well as on the social fabric of society. as a result of unfair trade rules and conditionality is composed -- in post. - imposed. there is a need for a new, local, economic government. i say there is an urgent need for a new global economic government, centered on people and aiming at consolidating cooperation between partners and development on the basis of mutual benefit and
not include freedom to insult religions. the u.s. army will stage a one- day stand down from normal duties tomorrow to focus on suicide prevention. through july, there had been 116 suicides among active-duty soldiers. that's up substantially from last year. the stand-down will not involve other branches of the military, and it will not apply to soldiers involved in combat operations or medical duties. nearly one in five u.s. households are now carrying college student debt and that's a record high. the pew research center reported today that the figure reached 19% in 2010-- twice what it was back in 1989. pew said the burden is greatest among the poorest families, and the average debt for all households is more than $26,000. >> woodruff: president obama and governor mitt romney were slugging it out again today on the campaign trail, both of them in the battleground state of ohio. and both of them mindful of the need to turn out younger voters, who went overwhelmingly for mr. obama in 2008, but who are proving more elusive this year. i traveled to the columbus area this past weekend ahead o
the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. i know there are some who ask, why don't we just ban such a video? r is enshrined in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. here in the united states countless publications provoke offense. like me the majority of americans are christian and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. as president of our country, and commander in chief of our military i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day, and i will always defend their right to do so. [applause] >> americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views, even views that we profoundly disagree with. we do not do so because we support hateful speech, but because our founders understood that without such protections the capacity of each individual express their own views and practice their ow
old, mr. melendez. what he did was a serious felony crime and he created a baby, my client is religion, she raised the child because it is h her belief that the child shouldn't suffer and now here is a guy who has had absolutely nothing to do with this child from birth suddenly has an urge to visit only because he is suddenly being made to pay. my beef with the judge is had the judge punished him in the criminal case by ordering restitution instead of sending him off to family court where he was rewarded with the privilege of fatherhood the guy would be paying restitution for his criminal behavior maybe in the form of an amount of money roughly equal to that which he might have been ordered to pay in family court but it would be a criminal punishment and wouldn't come attached to the presumptive privilege of fatherhood. >> shannon: there are two different situations here. the criminal judge. the criminal case. the rape case. he then sent the admitted rapist over to family court saying tamly court, probate court is where they decide with whether or not you can visit the child and what r
-hard packers fan. it is only fitting in a country where football is like a religion to millions of americans, it was a hail mary pass that brought this controversy to a head. here's brian todd. >> reporter: after three weeks of controversy and complaints, the nfl replacement referees literally decide the outcome of at least one game. on a desperation pass into the end zone, m.d. jennings of the green bay packers appears to catch the ball for the interception, but the reps rule that seattle seahawks also has the possession. >> the call on the field stands. touchdown. >> reporter: seahawks win. packers fume. >> don't ask me a question about the officials, all right? we'll just cut to the chase right there. i have never seen anything like that in all my years of football. >> just look at the replay. and the fact that it was revi reviewed, it was awful. that's all i'm going to say about that. >> reporter: tame compared to the tweets that went viral. from packers offensive guard t.j. lang, got f'd by the refs, embarrassing. thanks, nfl. fans on both sides of the aisle hope this dispute is settled
traditions. but there is a fundamental difference between israel and extremism. islam is a great religion peacefully over a billion people in our world. it's the most extremism is a warped political ideology supported by the minority that seeks to hijack this great religion to gain respectability for the violent objectives. it is vital that we make this distinction. in turkey we see the government with fruits and islamic values but one with democratic politics and open economy and responsible attitude to supporting change in libya and syria and elsewhere in the region. i profoundly believe that the same part is open to egypt to nisha and their neighbors and we must help them take it. democracy in islam can flourish alongside one another. so let us judge governments not by their religion, but how they act and what they do and let us in the region in a space government in egypt and tunisia said their success can strengthen democracy, not undermine it. mr. president, there is no doubt that we are in the midst of profound change and that many uncertainties lie ahead. the building blocks of de
but netanyahu laid out his vision for peace in the region. >> we want to see the three great religions that sprang fourth from our region, judaism, christianity and islam coexist in peace and mutual respect. yet the medieval forces of rad call islam who you saw storming american embassies of the middle east, they oppose this. they seek supremacy over all muslims. martha: david lee miller live at the united nations. david, what has been the reaction to that speech? >> reporter: martha one thing worth noting soon after prime minister netanyahu spoke mitt romney issued a statement essentially endorsing and echoing the remarks of the prime minister. romney joined the prime minister's call for a middle east progress of peace and he joined the call to prevent what he called the gravest threat. by that he meant a nuclear armed iran. now yesterday the israeli prime minister met with secretary of state hillary clinton. the u.s. position has remained the same though. the united states saying that it is not drawing any red lines. secretary clinton saying we are not setting any deadline. she also

and for religious discrimination. it's very hard to define defamation of religion. so the president in his speech will have to condemn the video that makes fun of the prophet muhammad without at the same time apologizing for the for amendment. host: it's not just the turkish president asking for this. it's also the new egyptian president mohamed morsi who will be calling for this. what do you make of that, given the protests in cairo recently and president obama's relationship with this new president? guest: all the leaders coming, including mohamed morsi, are playing a double game. applying a domestic game and an international game. he is the head of an islamist government, not a jihadist government, but an islamist government led by the muslim brotherhood. he must condemn this and call for international action. at the same time, people in the u.s. are very wary about whether or not he will communicate a style of governance that is zero more in the turkish style where there's a big religious influence within the government but there will also be tolerance for pluralism. i expect he will call for
working-class voters hit hard by the economy, 55-28 for romney in a recent study from the public religion research institute. so there's a lot of work to be done, and there's a message to say, hey, look, this is not the new normal. do not be satisfied with spending a bunch of tax money to keep this mediocre status quo. romney needs to get on that message. jon: simon, roughly half of all jobs lost have been lost by white men, so how does president obama try to appeal to them? >> well, was i think -- because i think the white men view the economy the way that most voters see it which is they know that things were really bad when president obama came to office, and things have gotten better. i know that not everybody who watches this believes that, but that's the case -- >> a lot of people who don't have jobs don't believe that. >> i know, but things are getting better. there's nobody spiking the football here on the economy, but clearly things are not only getting better from where they were when obama took office, but in the last few months -- [audio difficulty] as you just heard a minute
believe that muslims should be freed as christians and others should be free to practice their religions. that is all the president is saying. i think it is important that the united states and israel be together here publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. you want to have a united front publicly. you do not want to disagree in front of our adversaries. we'll have an honest disagreement with the israeli government. prime minister netanyahu has intervened in our political campaign by suggesting the united states should draw military force if iran does x, y, or z. that doesn't make sense to me. we should want our president to be able to use his own judgment at the time to make this decision. i agree with president obama. try to restrain israel and preventing israel from attacking is the right decision. we should support israel. again, i think the president is showing a lot of wisdom here. host: this is a photo from "the new york times." "train allies in afghanistan, with their guard fully up." what do you make of what some are calling
